    I have been wanting for a while to get some gutkas [in English], and I was wondering if most Gurudwaras should sell them? Otherwise I'll have to go to a Sikh shop in Southall which is an hour on the train from me and the journey will cost a bit as a I don't have much money right now...
    Also, what are the conditions for keeping gutkas in the house? All my books are covered with cloth so when not in use they will be covered... but there is alcohol [and meat] in my house... somebody else said to me this will be ok as I will make 100000% sure no meat comes anywhere near them and they are always kept clean and will not touch the floor... also, how much should I expect to pay for a gutka?

    Dear John,

    For Gutka, respect is important. Keeping it in a neat and clean place above floor or normal sitting place. While reading, sitting in a attentive sitting position. An intoxicant not getting in touch with it.

    I have no idea abt the price of Gutkas. But yes, I am aware of gurudwaras selling those and five kakaars, just like another commodity.

    Regards.
     
Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
